X2!

Been there done that several times with just a minivan full of 2 kids an a spouse. DC area at any time of the day or night is a disaster! Even worse than NYC.

1) I-5 in Los Angeles area
1b) Most highways in Washington State

Both for the bumpy roads. US2 Stevens Pass has a couple dips where it feels like your combination will snap in two.

I95 from Newark to NYC at the I80 merge. All the connecting roads to the GWB and the cross Bronx or Major Degan Expys. There are potholes, ruts and joints through there that should have zip codes. Tappan Zee bridge gets me good too.

The other roads I hate are older cement expansion joint roads found throughout the US as that usually gets the rig chucking some.

Austin metro area is terrible. Rush hour pretty much is now all day long and lasts to about 8 at night...Construction is never ending. I35 should be avoided unless you are driving through at night...

+1, except for the qualification of driving through at night. I would avoid it then too. That road has been horrible for decades; and it's only getting worse!

A very short and temporary worst. SR3 through Tupper Lake NY is under construction. No warning signs, no offers of many easy detours, until you pull around a corner and are faced with a steep grade, completely torn up, rutted gravel surface, with a traffic light halfway up and no way out.


I hit that this spring and the light changed to red just after I started my ascent. Tried the best I could to waste the light while crawling up the rise, avoiding the potholes and barricades and oncoming traffic. But alas I had to pretty much stop at the light just as it turned green. Then came the problem of getting enough traction to get moving again. I did a great job of relocating a whole bunch of gravel with multiple attempts to get enough traction to get moving.
Was through there again last weekend, and there has been very little progress in 3 months, but now I know enough to detour around the mess on the still paved side streets. Watched a guy hauling a big 5er up the hill and said a little prayer for him.

Found a new one today:

Mesilla Valley Bosque State Park, Mesilla NM

Washboard dirt road into park. Was so bad we turned around halfway in. Never made it to the park itself.

Mesilla Valley Bosque State Park

Definitely Chaco Canyon for BAD, bumpy road. Highway 1/208 from Leggett to Fort Bragg is horrifying (in fact, all of Highway 1). For us, the worst is 1-80 across Wyoming, especially on a windy day (which is almost always) dueling with the semis (which is always).
